Award for first smart product
16th April 2019
Roof window manufacturer VELUX has been awarded “Best Services Product” at this year’s Housebuilder Product Awards for its Velux Active smart home technology product.
Launched less than a year ago, in collaboration with French tech company Netatmo, Velux Active marked the company’s first venture into the smart home market.
The roof windows system constantly monitors the homes’ air quality by measuring temperature, humidity and CO2 levels, and regulates this by automatically operating roof windows and blinds according to the information it receives.
Product manager Grant Sneddon said: “Being recognised for the first smart home product we have taken to the market is a major milestone for us and something that is really encouraging for future innovation.
“Our success at the Housebuilder Product Awards gives us a fantastic platform to promote Velux Active, while securing our place as finalists in the product category of the Housebuilder Awards later in the year.”
